...Why does that list look old?

Bnet3433776d ago

Xbox 360 version had these since launch.

rofldings3776d ago

Kigmal, both versions were identical at launch.

Here's the info for the 360 patch.

Lifendz3776d ago

It actually makes you a worse shot. I just opt for the default scope. It allows for more accuracy.

RecSpec3776d ago

Both versions were the same at launch BUT 360 got some of the fixes in December.

Nonetheless, I've been hearing about this mythical patch since November. So I won't believe it til I see it.

LastDance3776d ago

well what was the patch i downloaded on my ps3 a week ago then??

RecSpec3776d ago

It stopped the 5 minute wait to get into games.

LastDance3776d ago

haha. is that so? not for me. All it did was put me back into the same game after i continuously exited.


fallfast3776d ago

Microsoft probably paid the COD4 developers to hold back the patch! hahahh lol!

So, you've only had it since December. Sheesh, thats not that long.

toughNAME3776d ago

wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong,
Right (I didn't even know the 360 got the patch 2 months ago),
wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.

My point was: most of the things on this list have been in Halo 3 since launch. It's nice to see COD4 is catching up.

MikeGdaGod3776d ago

they must know people are buying DS3s from Japan. i didn't realize how much i missed rumble until i got my DS3.

I hope this means zero lag!
Amen for "Quick Mute" - no longer will i have to endure Solja Boy on someone's stereo!

TwissT3776d ago

I love rap, but Soulja Boys songs are garbage, Tupac and Biggie R.I.P.

You cant mute people in every game on the PSN?

Huh? You mean the muting is on a game-by-game basis?

Armyless3776d ago (Edited 3776d ago )

Sony gives the Developers the freedom to pick and choose the PS3 features for each individual game. This approach is a console philosophy counter to Live, where Microsoft automatically back-ends the full feature list of the menu Sony decided to allow developers the choice to utilize XMB chipset resources for other things at the Developer's discretion.

This, it appears, is not what a vocal majority of the PS3 gaming community expects, and may change in 2008 with Developers granting more and more of the XMB features.

There is NO such thing as ZERO Lag. Either Your ISP or someone else's will suck causing some lag. The only thing they can do is minimize it.

rofldings3776d ago (Edited 3776d ago )

No ... the 360 version got the update just a week ago.

nomad1173776d ago (Edited 3776d ago )

Wow are you smart. LOL
If you have the 360 version. You would know this was not available when cod4 was released.

Bnet3433776d ago

I was talking about that mute and recent players they are adding, those were in 360 since launch.

RJ20003775d ago

O so 2 out of the 5 things becomes the majority now? Those are the 2 least important things anyway... well on XBox Live i guess you need the mute because of all the annoying kids.
